|Relevance Logics and other Tools for Reasoning|
Essays in Honor of J. Michael Dunn
This book honors J. Michael Dunn, who was a preeminent relevance logician. Dunn’s career spanned over 50 years and his research results had an impact on philosophy, mathematics and informatics. Dunn often used alge
aic techniques in his research into logics such as relevance, orthomodular and substructural logics. He invented the logic R-mingle and the sequent calculus LR+; he proved crucial theorems about 2-valued first-order logic and non-classical higher-order logics – among many other results.
The papers in this volume touch upon topics that Dunn was concerned with. Some authors were students or colleagues of Dunn; some other authors had not met Dunn in person, but share his research interests. None of the articles published here have appeared in print before; indeed, most of the papers were written specifically for this collection. The diversity of the themes of the articles reflects the scope of Dunn’s own research in logic. It will also ensure that anybody with an interest in logic – whether a student, a logician or a scholar in another field – will find reading this book a worthwhile endeavor.
The editor, Katalin Bimbó was the 14th Ph.D. student of J. Michael Dunn at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, U.S.A.; currently, she is a professor of philosophy at the University of Alberta in Canada.
